• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

@spiermackay If, after washing and drying, the large last year, it fit me pretty much perfectly, should I get a large or medium this year? For reference, chest is about 40" or so and I wear a 15 contemporary in the OCBDs. Thanks.
I had a similar experience with my XL polos (42" chest). The shrinkage from washing is significant, particularly in the length, even with air drying. Despite the extra chest room, I will probably stick with a size up for the length. I still really like the polos overall and wear them regularly.

The polos look nice. I just wish you had options that are reflective of people in the U.S. without having to go MTO or MTM for everything. Many of us are either big or fat. An XXL is not a 46 inch chest in the U.S. Rather, an XXL is around a 52 inch in the U.S.

Please consider that they shrink considerably after the first wash..... Even post shrinking, I have no qualms about an extra 1" in the chest and even welcome it. (The previous polos fit perfect, but an extra 1" works with me)

Chest 38", Shoulders 18".

What size would I be for polos? Small or medium?

My current polos in small are a snug fit, especially around the armhole area and not fully comfortable, but sizing up to medium might be too roomy.
With 18'' shoulders, do you find small polos too tight in the shoulders?

Will the new Neo Navy Hopsack be available today?
It's in an incoming shipment. I don't have the date it will reach yet. So no release until we have the date.

Is there any explication regarding the fits as in Neo neo 1 neo 2 etc? Completely lost but all here seem to be discussing it as if it were part of the product description :hide:

I've got a post on my website with my impressions each season as he iterated on it (assuming that when you say "neo 1, neo 2 etc" you're asking is the differences between generations): https://www.menswearmusings.com/spier-and-mackay-neapolitan-cut-jacket-round-3/
If you're asking how they compare to the regular jacket fit, the size charts will probably give you the answers you need most.
